Had lunch with the husband this week, a rare occasion when he was off work and we had something to celebrate. We went for it with starters and mains because we knew everything served here is so beautifully presented and utterly delicious. And we weren't disappointed. Totally delicious every single mouthful, consistently good. Cannot recommend enough.

After two weeks of traveling in Britain and Ireland we found The Square Bistro LISBURN and discovered the perfect place for good food and perfect service. A steak is a steak but at The Square theirs was one of the best in many years, tender with crunchy fried onions and chips. The cod was equally excellent, the evening was perfect,... More

Took my wife here for valentines, double date with my parents. The food is all locally sourced, of the highest quality and you can tell. The flavours in the meals are driven by the quality of the ingredients. The chef does them great justice combining the ingredients in great balance and allowing them to shine. Consistent quality throughout the courses... More

Staff were so friendly, great service - nice coffee. Unfortunately no plugs to charge my laptop but not their fault.

The proprietor/head chef Stevie Higginson runs a great kitchen. The extensive menu has something for everyone, yet every plate leaving the pass looks superb. Stevie's wife Christina runs a very professional and friendly front-of-house team. Book early - even mid-week. As good as any high-end diner in Belfast, and better than most.

Our first time to the Square wont be our last. There was a lovely buzz about the place as we arrived & we weren't disappointed- the food and service was first class. We will definitely be back.

We have been to Square Bistro a few times over the years and always enjoyed it. Visited last Saturday and it was excellent! Good service, very quick and friendly. I had chicken goujons and my husband ox cheek/steak and both were lovely. Followed by a great chocolate fondant dessert. Looking forward to trying tapas and curry night.

Dined here in Friday night with my husband and 5 yr old daughter. Booked the table over the phone during the week and got a confirmation call the day before which showed organisation in my opinion. Arrived to be seated at the table by the kitchen which was a high table with stools - super for us as my daughter... More
